Dealing with trauma

Dealing with trauma

By Cathy Kezelman and Pam Stavropoulos


Acknowledgement of trauma and implementation of trauma-informed practice within legal practice and systems is long overdue. Doing so will enhance both individual and community wellbeing. Unlike “normal stress”, trauma involves the overwhelming of coping mechanisms in response to real or perceived threat. Innate and initially protective fight, flight or freeze responses are activated. People living with the effects of unresolved trauma are often, however, profoundly destabilised by normal life stress. The cycle of physical and psychological reactivity it precipitates negatively affects wellbeing, and erodes health and a wide spectrum of functioning.
